Destination-suggestions for eurosurfers rookies - 2007/06/18 07:12 Hi there!

We are three would-be surfers, planning an august-surf vacation. Not with standing it will be the first time we'll see a surf board, we'd like to find a place with tasty waves --> as we live in Turin, Italy, and we're travelling by car we had thought to go to the western french coast, but it wouldn't be a great problem to change our destination to Spain or even Portugal (pheraphs, in that case, it would be cleverer to move by plane, wouldn't it?)

I've searched out on the net and found some offers made by schools in the Biarritz neighborhoods (surf-course + accomodation) for an average cost of 260€ --> we'd like to start with a good course (one week?), than try to smash our bones on our own. No matter if the course doesn't include accomodation too --> we're accoustomed to put our tent somewhere and...it's done. All we need is good waves and a place to rent all the stuff.

Thanks in advance. Hope to have soon some surfing photos to show in my profile.

Re:Destination-suggestions for eurosurfers rookies - 2007/06/19 08:48 I'd stick with France. Tons of beach breaks and Im sure more accomodating for surfers.

Re:Destination-suggestions for eurosurfers rookies - 2007/06/22 05:20 Hi, I am in Portugal, on the Lisbon coast and we have great waves here, not just in the summer but year round. Let me know if you need any info and I will be happy to help and, yes, it would be easier to get here by plane!

Re:Destination-suggestions for eurosurfers rookies - 2007/06/24 07:50 hi there, best thing to do IS portugal or spanish north coast!!! France is expensive, waves are definately better in pt, and french locals SUCK, kinda agressive dudes! it is not necessary to fly...its good for a road trip...

Re:Destination-suggestions for eurosurfers rookies - 2007/06/25 15:33 hi monokei...it wasnt that bad, but there are crowds of groms at the popular beaches, campgrounds and food are expensive, i was heading to the more local beaches and didnt look like i was "stealing" waves, i was there with my wife and little son and longboard, so it seemed relaxed but these stoopid local ones even pissed me off at the parking lot and told me that this was "their" spot!!!i found the oppesite in spain and portugal, where i made new local friends in hours!!!if u give respect u earn respect, but that thing doesnt work in france during high season!!
